The Only Constant is Change

March 24, 2020

For example, I was just sitting here burrowing deeper and deeper under my fluffy blanket, next to the fire, listening to the pouring rain…




And by the time I finished writing that, the rain vanished, the sun came out blazing, and the living room is now full of sunbeams and rainbows. As I look outside, I see water dripping from birch leaves that are shimmering in a light breeze and a bright blue sky with a few puffy clouds. What the heck.

I suddenly feel silly under my blanket.. let me see if I can get a pic of this suddenly spring afternoon… brb.


Ok, here’s what I got:

The backyard birch, right next to the deck.. (deck.. we now have a deck!)



Wet leaf on said birch…


Looking back toward house, water dribbling off said deck…


(Just noticed, the sky’s about the same color as the house… that would be Bella Blue.)

So.. what I was going to talk about in this blog post is the change apparently a – comin’ in the US’s, uh, fight against the coronavirus. We apparently have won! And won big.

Just going to cut to the chase here: as we are all gearing up for a battle we think is just getting started, the president has decided it’s over. He anticipates that by Easter (about 2.5 weeks from now) we will all be congregating in big, beautiful crowds for Easter services in our nation’s churches.. because he now sees the light at the end of the tunnel. He says this in a press briefing (which I’m happy to say I missed) to the shock of every public health professional on the planet.

Who am I to say he’s wrong? What do I know? I guess we’ll all see.

So change. You think you’re going in one direction and then you’re not.
